About

Hunter Valley Semillon is was described by noted UK wine personality Jancis Robinson as _“Australia's gift to the wine world.”_ Nowhere else on the globe is there a completely unoaked style of this variety which has the capacity to age and transform itself for 20 years or more. The problem is that it can be difficult to find examples of good examples of Semillon with some bottle age. Wines which are starting to show their true potential are becoming rarer and rarer as the cost of ageing in the winery increases every year. Thankfully, there are a few producers, such as the forward thinking team at De Iuliis, who still see the value in giving this wonderful wine style time to evolve and mature before release. Their 2009 Aged Release Semillon is a wonderful wine which is really starting to come into its own. Like a teenager on the cusp of adulthood, it is still flush with youthful exuberance with the first whispers of maturity eeking their way into its personality. If you have never experienced aged Hunter Semillon, it is truly one of the delights of our wine landscape. With 95 points from James Halliday and 94 points from Mike Bennie, this brilliant example from Mike and co. is ready for your enjoyment. Great value and great wine.

What it Tastes Like

"A bit closed in perfume, wrapped up citrussy characters with some apple notes and a touch of toast and honey. Tangy to taste, light, lean, clear and linear with good line and length and barely-there development keeping the wine organised and toned. Built for long haul and for acid hounds. Cellar longer. And longer. Drinking superbly." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
